Get Instant Shower Storage for Less Than $20

4 Materials
10 Minutes
Need more shower storage? I definitely did! There's nothing worse than trying to get clean while bottles and soap containers are falling on your toes. Instead of adding shelves or making a more permenant (read: expesnvie) change to my shower, I came up with a simple solution! I used a tension rod, shower baskets, and some curtain hooks to create more shower space. It's simple and space saving.
-Tension Rod
-Shower Baskets
-Shower Clips
-Metal Curtain Clips
STEP 1: Prepare your tension rod
Remove the rubber end of your tension rod and slide all of the shower clips and curtain hooks onto the rod.
STEP 2: Attach shower clips to baskets
Feed the shower clips through the holes of the shower baskets on each end allowing it to hang from the tension rod.
STEP 3: Add your rod to the shower
Hang your rod against the wall of your shower.
STEP 4: Hang your bottles
Clip bottles and wash rags with the curtain hooks and fill up your baskets with fitting items. (I used shallow baskets with the intent of keeping smaller items in it, however, there is a plethora of basket options at the dollar store that would be more suitable than larger items as well.)

    is there a reason this wouldn’t work on the shower rod that has the curtain?

    I love the idea as everything is available. I was wondering why you didn't use plastic clips. Will they not hold the weight?

    I need a place to hang bath cloths after getting a new shower and bathtub last year. There are a lot of places to put things but I don’t like the idea of laying bath cloths down. I bought some super glue and hanging hooks several times and kept misplacing them. I just bought some more on Saturday. I really didn’t want to use super glue. I’m glad I found your post. I like this idea better. Thanks!
